You love the painting. But the frame
it’s in? Not so much. Maybe it’s broken. Maybe it doesn’t match your décor. Or
maybe it’s just…visually unfortunate,
to put it kindly. No matter what the problem is, reframing can fix it.
our Manager of Specialty Projects and resident framing expert, says people
reframe photos and paintings for lots of reasons. Mats can fade, glass can get
damaged, artwork can become unglued and slip. Some frames even become home to
bugs over the years and a new frame is the easiest way to evict them.
If you’re reframing an older piece of
art, take extra care not to damage any part of the painting, frame, and
backing, and keep the original frame. Art can sometimes decrease in value if
the original frame is not included when it’s resold.
Now, we’re ready to get started! Follow
these simple steps to reframe your art.
